Participation in an air defense exercise alongside several NATO member states next year is on the hot seat.

A demonstration of the Patrouille Suisse in Czech Republic has already been canceled in September. Again, a crash has lowered the reserve units. In addition, other aircraft are grounded due to many unforeseen changes reactors in recent weeks, said Jürg Nussbaum.
However, he insisted that the pilots retain a sufficient number of hours of flight. at September aboard the F/A-18, it was even higher than 125 hours threshold.
The air force has lost in recent years several combat aircraft. An F/A-18 crashed in late August in Sustenpass region and a Tiger F-5 crashed early June during a training flight in the Netherlands. Other crashes of F/A-18 occurred in France in 2015 and in the sector Lopper (OW) in 2013.
